I have been waiting for a project like this for 2019 Luna Award’s Best Actor Daniel Padilla since I’ve learned early this year that the KATHNIEL we love will have separate projects. This time, they finally get a go signal to run the film through a grant. And I am the happiest. (ok we are the happiest). From the looks of it, the project is being developed by an A-LIST, high caliber outfits in the country, and worldwide. I could not ask for more.
Against the backdrop of the typhoon Yolanda, a mother Charo Santos Concio and her son (Daniel Padilla) struggle for survival and deal with absurdity of fate, sustained by the hope that they carry, and what is lost and gained.
